Menu Mission Accomplished: Sotto Mare

It’s almost as if yesterday’s success story inspired MenuPages users, because today, we received yet another menu from a prior Menu Mission. Coincidence or not, if you guys keep this up, we just might have to make this a regular feature. We’re scared too.

In any event, we’ve been jonesing for Sotto Mare’s menu for weeks now, and the North Beach seafood destination doesn’t disappoint. You’ll find daily specials and some staples–like chowder, sand dabs and crab louis–along with some cheapie items ($1 oysters, clams) perfect for a post-work outing.

The menu, interestingly enough, is short but not sweet. In lieu of a “traditional” dessert menu, Sotto Mare supposedly presents the diner with this thank you note: “After 12 years (in the restaurant business) and 62 years of life, coffee and dessert are bad for my diabetes, gout and cholesterol. In good conscience I cannot serve this to my customers. … There are lots of places here in North Beach where you can have an excellent espresso and dessert, rub elbows with poets and even learn a little Italian. … Mille Gracie.”
